T.R. Sullivan writes that Drew Hutchison was a failed bit in his debut as the Rangers dropped yesterday’s finale to the Orioles 9-6.
Jeff Wilson writes that the Rangers feel like Willie Calhoun’s defense is improving.
Calhoun was on with Ben & Skin to talk about the Rangers jerking him around for four months (my words, not his) and the DMN has a transcript.
William Wilkerson of the Star-Telegram writes that Elvis Andrus is streaking, Jose Leclerc has ascended to closer of the present and future, and Jurickson Profar is providing highlight reel plays at third base, among other notes.
Sullivan writes about Andrus’ involvement with a foundation that aims to teach kids that dangerous performance-enhancing substances are lame.
And, lastly, Dan Szymborski lists Shin-Soo Choo among players who could potentially be traded in August.
Have a nice day.
